Medmastery: PPV and prevalence

The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting videos from their Epidemiology Essentials course.

In this video, Franz Wiesbauer looks at how a doctor can work out the probability of disease when confronted with a positive or a negative test result and how the prevalence of a given disease affects this probability.
